Abigail Adams is the amateur detective in this first book in a new series that takes place in 1773 Boston. The author doesn't insult the reader and since Abigail is very well educated there are untranslated Latin phrases and references to the Bible and Greek mythology. And a finely crafted mystery, some interesting characters, and a real sense of the smells and the cold and the sound of bells.
